Queensland Day Sponsorship Program

The Queensland Day Sponsorship Program encourages Queenslanders to celebrate Queensland Day (6 June) in a way that reflects the unique culture, heritage and aspirations of their own community.

Each year, right across the state, Queenslanders mark this annual celebration of our people, places and achievements with festivals, markets, art initiatives, parades, family fun days or an event unique to their community.
